it was good to know what those things on the dial and what do they exactly do.
I have learned how to compose a picture and take on different elements in the foreground and bring with them in with the right lens.

I like the course because it puts the emphasis on creating great photos by finding interesting vantage points. A photograph can be technically perfect but still be boring if you do not find the right viewpoint.

Great introductory info. Professor Glendining is very thorough explaining every detail.
Peer assignment feedbacks are useless, so I wish there were also instructors or their assistants reviewing our work.

Prof. Glendinning was a tremendous mentor in this course. Loved his teaching, very thankful for that! Plus, the content was just enough so that it was not too much and boring or insufficient.
